I occasionally read a blog about a little boy named Max who has Cerebral Palsy. His mom, Ellen, is a great writer and recently had kid-testers review some toys to make a Special Needs 2011 Toy List. It's a really great list!
If you're a special needs parent, I would encourage you to check it out. There are toys on the list for all developmental levels. Although I'm done with Abby's Christmas shopping, I saw a few toys that I might keep in mind for future gifts.
